Marc by Marc Jacobs $248- Usually I'm not into overly trendy, especially when it comes to a swimsuit cover up. But just picture yourself in this cover up while walking to the pool bar in a swanky hotel/resort in Miami. I think the added belt with the interlocking "fish" add to the adorable factor in this piece plus you are being trendy but not flashy or skimpy in any way!
Diane von Furstenberg Zoe $260- Another favorite from Bloomies. The bright colors are remind me of South America. It looks like something that would blend in in Brazil! These bright colors would also work well with your freshly bronzed skin! I also love this one because it looks enough like a dress that you could wear it into a casual restaurant for a quick bite to eat without looking ridiculous.
Do you have any favorite cover ups? Where did you get them? Have a fabulous day!!

It's nice and sunny here today so I thought I'd try out the Dory blouse I just ordered from Lands End. I love love love it and I have received many compliments on it already today! Have a fabulous day!

I saw this beach towel on Lands End's website and I just had to share it with you all! It's only $17.50 and with spring break right around the corner, who wouldn't want to show off this towel! The picture quality is terrible for some reason but they have the pink and green color combination which I love! They also have a pale pink and navy combo and a navy and pale yellow combo. I have to say surprisingly the navy/yellow combo is my favorite! Have you ordered one of these towels? If so, let me know! I'm anxious to see if they hold up well! Have a fabulous Wednesday!

LOVE this dress. It almost looks like something from J.Crew and for a fraction of the cost!This yellow hue is sure to brighten even the dreariest day! For $79.50 you just can't be that price!
I definitely suggest checking out Canvas. I promise you will not be disappointed! Have a fabulous day!

I'm loving Orvis's watch box. It's perfect. Personalized, check. Quality, check. Tasteful, check. Great price ($50), check. I'm thinking even I'd love one of these.I'm not exactly an advocate of cigar smoking or any type of tobacco use, but some men enjoy a cigar every once and a while, so why not get him a cigar humidor. The one above is from redenvelope and is only $50.I just love this idea of his and her keychains. Put them together and they make a heart. Take them apart and they are bottle openers. Are they trying to tell us something? I think yes. $30.
What are you getting your valentine for the special day? I'd love to hear about it, I'm always looking for new ideas! Have a great day!

I love the classic shift cut of this dress, but I also love the not too shiny metallic look. It's often hard to find a metallic dress that is not tacky or too gaudy.
Pleated Scoopneck Dress
Love love love this one! I usually don't like orange all by itself but this dress is just fabulous. I am in love with the circle back and the flattering cut of this tunic. This could definitely be dressed up or dressed down for any occassion.
I hope you enjoyed the fabulous dresses, and have a great monday!
